Unassigned, because technically kdub is working on the prerequisite work only right now. And I don't want to get into the situation again where we are arguing over whether VM support is "done". So will assign this when the plan is closer to completion. ** Changed in: mir Assignee: Kevin

Another interesting idea: If we implement a headless driver (discussed today) with GL support (OSMesa) then that gets us halfway to resolving this bug. Then all that's required is to replace the headless output with a linear framebuffer device (which fbdev is?). -- You received this bug

Indeed, the current state of VM support for Mir/Unity8 is: (1) QXL works already (modulo that mouse problem, please log a new bug) (2) VirtualBox will be next (aiming before 17.04): bug 1584894 (3) Generalised software rendering on fbdev or SimpleDRM later (still hoping for 17.04): this bug

I've found I can get Unity8 to render in virt-manager (Qemu/KVM) with Display set to Spice and Video: QXL. That might be a faster target (for QA) then getting full software rendering. The only showstopper is the mouse doesn't let me go across the entire screen. It seems what Mir says is the

Further to comment #30, the "preferred" solution of SimpleDRM is making a comeback (but doesn't yet exist in anyone's kernel): https://lists.freedesktop.org/archives/dri-devel/2016-August/114861.html It doesn't have to be the only option though. We can still do an fbdev+osmesa driver in the
